Y v Z

Contempt of court – Committal. The Family Division, on the father's application for committal to prison (or other penalty) of the mother for the alleged contempt of an order, namely, in having failed to return two children to England and Wales from India, held that the mother was in contempt of court. However, the question of sentence was adjourned to give the mother a time for reflection and time to mitigate, should she wish to do so.
